Author's comments and explanations:
Out of this World is an old action-adventure game (with some of the earliest polygonal graphics) that is nearly impossible to play without dying a lot.

This movie:

To view the SMV, you should use the version of Snes9x found at: http://bisqwit.iki.fi/nesvideos/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1816
Turn on WIP1 Timing, Fake Mute workaround, and Sync to Sound CPU, and turn off Volume Envelope Height Reading and Left+Right/Up+Down. Alternatively, you can use Snes9x 1.43 WIP 1 dev version, but because this has no "Fake Mute" option, you will have to mute the sound for real by setting the sound playback rate to "No Sound".

This game falls victim to the sound-code desync bug in Snes9x, which was briefly discussed here: http://bisqwit.iki.fi/nesvideos/forum/viewtopic.php?t=542
This bug is the reason this run was originally recorded without sound, and now it can only be played back with sound using a modified version of Snes9x such as the one mentioned above, which can use Bisqwit's method of making the SNES think the sound is muted.

Programming errors abused:

Bisqwit: Processing this movie... with sound (!).
